Description
Chatsworth

Having evolved over more than 450 years, the 105 acre Chatsworth garden continues to change today. There is plenty to discover at every turn, including permanent sculptures to be found.

The famous waterworks include the 300 year old Cascade, the trough waterfall in the rockery and the enormous gravity-fed Emperor fountain. As well as the huge maze, the rockery and the rose, cottage and kitchen gardens, there are also over five miles of walks with rare trees, shrubs, streams and ponds to discover.

Today the garden is managed by a team of 18 gardeners and trainees. At the same time as preserving its layers of history, the present Duke and Duchess are developing new areas and features of the garden for visitors. In 2011 this included the installation of a selection of bronze busts by the artist Angela Conner, commissioned by the 11th Duke.

Sotheby's Beyond Limits, a monumental sculpture exhibition, will be featured in the garden from 8 September through 26 October 2014.

Visitors are encouraged to explore the garden at their leisure, there are no signs saying 'keep off the grass', and dogs on leads are also very welcome. Please note there is no lighting in the garden after dark.
